String Cheese Incident – Black And White lyrics

Spend our lifetime reading
Books that we've been told to
Are we catching the meaning?
Are we really supposed to?

It's time that we start seeing
The shades of color between the lines
Find a true way of being
Don't you think we're wasting time

Have you heard of Douglas town?

And the Irish of another skin

A million people have died there
How come we never heard a thing?

You envision a world without chains

Listen do you hear the call?
Dr. King and those who rise and fall
Fought so hard to bring peace to all

Can't you see
That not everything is black and white?
Can't you see,
That we need each other's strength and might?
In this world of illusion
It's so easy to be blinded
Out of created confusion
Separation in minded

See if we can believe in
The truth that all our children know
It's about time we start thinking
It's not all about what we're told

Can't you see
That not everything is black and white?
Can't you feel
That we need each other's strength and might?
When we believe
That there's no need for these walls to grow
We'll all see
That it takes all colors to make this rainbow

Higher, higher, higher....(and so on)
